Adler is 4 Months!

 My big boy is 4 months already!  I cannot believe how fast the time is going.  He had his 4 month check-up with Dr Austman and weighed in at 16 lbs 13 oz (75%) and was 25.5 inches long (75%)!  She said his neck looked good and while there is still a bit of a flat side she thinks he will come out of it fine!

He is such a drooler.  I can't help but think I'll be seeing a tooth pop through any day now.  This past month he has found his voice and loves to squeal!  Especially in his jumparoo - which he loves.  He still does great sleeping through  the night.  Some nights I can hear him stir and I'll just go put his paci in and he goes back to sleep.  Adler is wearing size 9 month clothes and size 3 diapers.  I finally found the missing tub of Asher's clothes so his closet is stocked again.  He wore jeans for the first time last Sunday.  With Asher he was like a little doll that I dressed up - with Adler its all about comfort!

We've made it 4 full months on just Mommy's milk and I'm SO proud of myself!  I also have about 1,000 ounces in the deep freeze.  This makes me so happy because with Asher I was lucky to have 6 oz frozen at a time. 

I can't wait until I'm done working and can spend all my time with my little men!  Adler is growing and changing everyday and Asher is learning so much at school its fun to hear about new discoveries he's made.

Snuggles with my sweet boy

Over It

I thought I'd better post as a courtesy to let you guys know that I'll be taking a blogging hiatus - I'm sure you've noticed my lack of posting.... or maybe no one has!?!?!  I have no idea how long it will be for but I need a break.  I begin my journey as a Stay At Home Mama October 1st and I couldn't be more excited.

The decision to stay home with my kids was the easiest and hardest decision I think I've made yet.  It took a full year to make the final decision - I didn't just up and quit my job.  Maybe someday I'll tell you about the whole process.

And for your viewing pleasure - here are my boys yesterday :)

** Recipe posts will continue cuz I have them scheduled through January. **

I still find it hard to believe that my cousin Jordyn is a Senior!  I babysat this child way back when she was 3...

Let's Eat - Cheese Spread

My cousin Addie is getting married in just a few short weeks.  Last year as I began thinking about her wedding I decided that I wanted to make her a cook book full of family recipes for her shower gift.  To be honest it took me almost a year to finish it.  I tried really hard to make every single recipe in this book but there were a few that just looked "too hard."
 But I wanted to share a few of our family recipes with you each week.  Enjoy!
